Gin Sprint 3

Gin Gliders are targeting their new XC wing, the Sprint 3, at leisure, club or cross-country pilots: "... the Sprint 3's carefully calibrated blend of handling, comfort, stability and performance will ensure you get the very best out of your flying. The Sprint 3 weighs only 4.5kg (M), yet features durable fabric and fully sheathed main and mid lines."

"The Sprint 3 has been designed to hit the "sweet spot" for a majority of pilots. It's undemanding and comfortable to fly, yet sporty enough to be fun. And if you're in the mood to eat up the XC kilometres, you'll find plenty of performance under the gas pedal!"

Order & delivery info 15/04/2016: Only the M size has been certified so far; delivery expected end of May. The S and L sizes expected next; other sizes to follow. Available to pre-order now. Contact us to find out more, arrange a test flight and order yours!

Advance Epsilon 8 (Progression Class)

A compact and stable canopy makes a pilot feel happy, even in demanding conditions.

Numerous performance-enhancing tweaks have found their way into the wing. It was designed as a hybrid 3-liner and has only one line junction level.

The Epsilon 8 is a Progression class wing with good direct handling and performance, very stable, with thin risers, very few lines and light weight.

Test pilot Greg Blondeau commented: "I had lots of fun to test it, I think it's a good evolution for the sport to have an easy glider like this."

Flybubble demo arriving soon, review to follow!

Nova ION 4 (Progression Class)

According to Nova, the ION 4 has a better glide than the MENTOR 3. From 3.95 kg (XXS) it is feather light and offers impressive handling and climb performance.

The ION 4 offers a high degree of passive safety and is suitable for a wide spectrum of pilots but is aimed at gifted beginners and pilots with developing cross-country ambitions.

A refined canopy shape and tapered wing tips underpin the design optimisation. The light weight makes the ION 4 simple to launch and improves its extreme flight behaviour. 

Flybubble review coming soon.
